Maclure, Samuel

Maclure, Samuel (1860–1929). Canadian architect. He designed a large number of interesting houses in the Shingle style in and around Victoria, British Columbia, from 1890 until his death. He later favoured Tudoresque Arts-and-Crafts detailing, and the best examples that survive include the Biggerstaff-Wilson House (1905–6), with its natural materials, careful siting, and plan of two axes meeting in the stairway and hall. With Cecil Croker Fox (1879–1916), who had worked in Voysey's office, he designed several successful houses, including the Huntting House, Vancouver, British Columbia (1911). After the 1914–18 war the office was run by his former pupil, Ross A. Lort (1889–1968), who was influenced by the Classical work of Lutyens. Maclure was also important for his garden and landscape design.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
